Notes & Reviews:

This recording presents world premiere recordings of two works by Ellen Zwilich, one of America's most treasured composers. The 'Concerto for Violin' was heralded by the New York Times as being 'a love-song to the violin'. It is here performed by the extraordinary Pamela Frank. The exotically scored 'Rituals' is a remarkable work, making use of instruments around the world, making use of instruments around the world. This performance features the IRIS Chamber Orchestra.
